16 accused of cold calling scam selling warranties on behalf of Sky Television Company
SIXTEEN people have appeared in court charged with a call centre scam in which they allegedly tried to sell people warranties on behalf of Sky Television.
They are accused of giving the impression of, or pretending to be, calling from Sky Television Company in order to sell warranties.
The 16 men and women, some members of the same family, face charges of conspiracy to defraud, while two also face a charge of conspiring to pervert the course of justice. A date was set for a Crown Court hearing later this month.
No pleas were formally entered, but each gave an indication they would be pleading not guilty.
